A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish
A motivational post about our
Plan Vs. Goals
“A Goal Without A Plan Is Just A Wish” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Not all of us are all the time focused and organized. Fortunatelly, this all could be corrected. But without a plan, how can we communicate to the team and ourselves and how can we achieve our business goals?
In the book ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People’ the author Stephen Covey gives a detailed explanation about how to move from dependence to independence in the following 3 habits:
- Habit 1: Be Proactive: Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions (and how they align with life’s principles) are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for your choices and the subsequent consequences that follow.
- Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind: Self-discover and clarify your deeply important character values and life goals. Envision the ideal characteristics for each of your various roles and relationships in life.
- Habit 3: Put First Things First: Plan, prioritize, and execute your week’s tasks based on importance rather than urgency. Evaluate whether your efforts exemplify your desired character values, propel you toward goals, and enrich the roles and relationships that were elaborated in Habit 2. (source: Wikipedia)
A goal setting plan builts a path between our dream today and the reality tomorrow. Without a well-thought-out plan of the when, why, what and how the goals alone will not get us to our desired destination.
Set up your plan today and start achieving your goals!
